New York City Mayor Bloomberg and Health Commissioner Farley Receive Flu Shot at Duane Reade Pharmacy, Highlight Importance of Flu Preparedness
Date:10/25/2012

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas A. Farley received their seasonal flu vaccination this morning at a Duane Reade pharmacy (NYSE: WAG) at 100 Broadway, New York City, demonstrating the importance of taking proactive steps to prevent the spread of influenza. Duane Reade is part of the Walgreens family of companies.

"We are proud to have Mayor Bloomberg reinforce to all New Yorkers the need for protection and prevention with his flu shot. Through greater access to immunizations across our network of Duane Reade and Walgreens pharmacies throughout New York we are helping more customers get, stay and live well," said Jeff Koziel, Walgreens market vice president.  "For those who have not gotten a flu shot yet, it is prime time for prevention with changes in the weather, the upcoming holiday travel season and many other ways in which germs and viruses spread this time of year."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) again recommends this year that everyone over the age of six months get a flu shot. Vaccination is recommended every season as the best protection against influenza. Walgreens and Duane Reade pharmacists in New York can administer flu shots to those age 18 and over.

"Getting the flu is no fun at all, and it can even be deadly," said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.  "Every year, too many New Yorkers lose their lives to influenza and the flu vaccine is the single most important protection against getting sick and spreading the flu to others. I urge everyone to go to their doctor, local health clinic or pharmacy and get a flu vaccine as soon as they can."    

Flu shots are covered under Medicare Part B as well as many insurance plans. All Walgreens points of care also offer Fluzone HD, a high-dose influenza vaccine for those over age 65, and all pharmacies offer Fluzone Intradermal, a shot administered with
